Judges Comment

What a fantastic silhouette image of a stunning horse. Based on its outline, head and tail, I imagine he is a Friesian? The low angle of this image elevates him even more, giving his alert stance one of pride and strength. The only distracting element in this image is the light grass in the left corner foreground; it pulls the viewer's eye out of the frame and away from the incredible subject. I would darken this to make it work as part of the silhouette. But an absolutely beautiful capture. Nicely done, and congrats!
